About American Spotted Paso HorsesAbout American Spotted Paso Horses

American Spotted Paso horses are the American version of the Peruvian Peso horse. One of the main goals for American breeders is to combine the smooth gaits of the Peruvian Paso horse with the colorful coat patterns of the pinto.  

They originated with a pure black Paruvian Paso stallion named Janchovilla who was bred to pinto mares. Of the resulting foals about 3/4 of them were spotted and all of them carried the Paso gait.

There are two different registries for this breed for animals with different degrees of Paso blood. However, to register with either the animal must have one purebred Paruvian Paso and exhibit the four-beat lateral gait.
